  • Ok, ok.

    The dinner scene was disturbing.
  • New Family Guy episodes in a nutshell?

    Oh I can tell you. It's plots that invole politics, religion (especially jews), racism, and relationships. This one is an example of a bad religion episode.
  • Decent FG ep, but offensive for Jewishs.

    This episode was good. Of course, my score is 30 points from a perfect score because of a few reasons: the plot. It was just another Jewish plot (like When you wish a weinstein), but more offensive than the last one. Also, Peter was getting annoying in this episode after he find out Lois being Jewish. I did liked that Peter fall for Kathy Ireland thing. Quagmire's parts (his stuffs on the in porn, and the cutaway when he wanted a spin off). Stewie's part was kinda funny as well. I don't think I had any more funny parts. i wanted a 6 rating, but there were no violence at all (since the newer FG episodes always relied on them), I made my score a little higher. Overall, this episode was good, but offensive to the Jews. 7 out of 10moreless

    What I liked- Francis in ghost form, the ending of the episode where Jesus appears and pretty much says all religion is fake, Carter trying to get Babs and Lois to go after the dollar, and then lying and saying there was salmon, etc.



    Eh, not a huge fan of this one. There were some laughs here and there but it did not hold my interest much, and Peter was pretty annoying throughout it. I think it's kind of hypocritical that When You Wish Upon a Weinstein was originally banned, yet I haven't heard anything about this being banned. If you ask me, this episode is much worse then the other Jewish episode. But whatever. Final grade is going to be a C+/B- or so, I think is fairmoreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Brian: That's the problem with this world; Too many people go overboard with what they believe, like Quagmire when he thought He was the one getting the spin-off.
      (Cut-away to Quagmire walking down Spooner Street)
      Quagmire: See you later, bitches! Have fun with your stupid, goddamn Giant Chicken jokes and your Conway Twitty... Hey, why is there a moving truck outside Cleveland's house?

    • (at his first day in Jewish school)
      Teacher: And instead of lasting for one day, the oil in the lamp lasted for eight days. And that is why we celebrate Hanukkah.
      Stewie: Yeah, yeah, yeah...how long before we play "pin the eviction notice on the black guy's door?"
      Teacher: Now, does anyone have any questions?
      Stewie: Yeah, I have a question...what are you gonna do when Jesus comes back and puts a boot up your ass?

    • Meg: Mom, is sodomy illegal if you're Jewish?
      Lois: (sighs) I hope so, Meg. I really do.
      Peter: (smiling) It's not, Lois. It's not.

    • Max: Becoming Jewish doesn't happen overnight. It's a process that involves spiritual education and good works.
      Peter: So what you're saying is that it happens overnight?

    • Lois: Oh my God, so grandma Hebrewberg is actually Jewish?
      Barbara: Yes, when she moved to America, her family changed their name. It was originally Hebrewbergmoneygrabber.

    • Dr. Hartmann: Mrs Griffin, I've got good news! Your test results came back negative. It appears that the lump in your breast is not "Black Gross Boob Death."
      Lois: Breast cancer?
      Dr. Hartmann: That's the layman's term, yes.

    • Lois: Peter, stop that! We're not having sex. I just told you I have a lump.
      Peter: I got a lump too, and mine's easier to get rid of.

    • Peter: But then Jesus, what religion should our family be?
      Jesus: Six of one--they're all complete crap.
      Brian: (off camera) Thank you!

  • ALLUSIONS (8)

    • Star Wars

      Peter asked Francise Griffin to say "Peter, you must go to the Dagobah System", this is from "Star Wars episode five: The Empire Strikes Back" where the ghost of Obi-wan tells Luke Skywalker to seek Yoda in the Dagobah System and Stewie mentions that he feel like he is at the far moon on Endor twice, this is from "Star Wars episode six: Return of the Jedi".

    • Francis: Peter, you must go to the Dagobah system.

      Another of many references to the Star Wars series...this time, The Empire Strikes Back.

    • Stewie: Look at all these short, hairy men. God, I feel like I'm on the forest moon of Endor.

      Stewie is referencing the Ewoks, made popular in Episode 6 of the Star Wars saga, Return Of The Jedi.

    • The Cleveland Show

      Brian mentions that Quagmire thought he was getting the spinoff, only to realize that there was a moving van outside of Cleveland's house.

    • Peter: She's betrayed me worse than Lady Macbeth betrayed Duncan!

      Peter references the play Macbeth. However, he also explains that he doesn't know Shakespeare all that well, so he envisions Lady Macbeth fighting a bear on a spaceship.

    • SuperFriends

      The opening sequence is done in the style of the animated TV series SuperFriends.

    • Schindler's List

      The scene where Peter shoots at Lois then waves the gun behind his back is from the movie Schindler's List, in which Goth does the same thing.

    • Stewie: Kali mah! Kali mah!

      Stewie ripping Meg's beating heart out of her chest is a reference to the 1984 movie Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
